Alistair Miles recently worked out a hack to do something related to
this with content negotiation -- specifically, teaching Apache to return
either an application/rdf+xml view, a text/html, or a text/xml view
depending on what the request stated in Accept.  (This is in the
context of returning either a human-readable or a machine-
interpretable resource at an RDF namespace URI).

Perhaps Alistair's technique can be adapted to the GRDDL purpose.
